Managing Participants

As the host in a meeting, you can manage the participants. By default, any participant in a meeting can share their video, screen, and audio. 

Clicking on Manage Participants in the Zoom navigation bar will enable you to utilise most of the below features:

Zoom_manage participants

The hosts and co-hosts control the following participant features during a Zoom meeting:

  • Mute participants
  • Request that a participant unmutes
  • Stop a participant's video
  • Request that a participant starts their video
  • Prevent participants from screen sharing
  • Rename a participant
  • Put a participant on hold if enabled
  • Choose to play an enter or exit chime
  • Lock the meeting to prevent anyone new from joining
  • Place participants in waiting room or admit/remove participants from the waiting room (waiting room can only be enabled by the host)

Note: By clicking the arrow on the left-hand side of the Participant or Chat window in Zoom, you will be able to Pop Out or un-dock the window. This will mean these tools are retained when you share your screen.

The Zoom Resource 'Managing Participants in a Meeting' has an overview of these features.
